While I am a proud member of Slowfood Germany I consider it somewhat shocking to find one of my pictures - the vegetable shot of my organic veggie box - (All Rights Reserved) on your blog. No mentioning of the source, no asking for permission, not even a tiny little trackback - this is not what Slowfood is all about, is it? This is what I call copyright infringement. I would have given permission to use one of my photos gladly if someone had bothered to ASK. Politely.

I am a professional food writer (actually just now working on the Geek Cookbook for O'Reilly) and .. well... if someone could contact me and offer an explanation or an excuse I'd be grateful. Otherwise,may I ask you to _remove_ my photo from your website immediately.

With kind regards from Hamburg, Germany
